Guidance

The Australian Government spends in excess of $50 million per annum on its office printing. To minimise printing expenditure, the Major Office Machines Contract Administration Team has created the Better Printing Guide and Poster to further raise awareness of the financial and environmental costs of printing. Black and white impressions cost approximately 10 times less than colour impressions and, when combined with double sided printing, can reduce costs significantly. A small change in your black and white to colour print ratio will lead to big savings.

The guide provides tips on how to reduce impression counts, manage colour to monochrome impression ratios and increase double-sided printing – which will minimise printing related expenditure.

When did the MOMs II Panel commence?

The Department of Finance established the MOMs II Panel on 1 December 2016. For more information see the media release.
